According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, social determinants of health (SDOH) “are conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play that affect a wide range of health and quality-of life-risks and outcomes.” There is increasing awareness that SDOH affect physical and mental health outcomes. In this conversation we will be addressing the social determinants of mental health (SDOMH). Just as the importance of understanding the Adverse Childhood Experiences study is to clinical practice, understanding an individual’s SDOMH can help uncover social and behavioral factors that impact their health. Behavioral health organizations and practitioners will analyze the impact SDOMH have on participants of services, while also investigating strategies for reducing health disparities that are often rooted in social and economic disadvantages in the context of clinical practice. Specific attention will be paid to both clinician level and systems level intervention.
